Chemosphere

Saves: 83
Check-ins: 8
It sounds like a place where one might receive cancer therapy but Chemosphere is actually a residential home. Built in 1960, it was a progressive design to make use of a hillside in the San Fernando Valley. Still a marvel and still ahead of its time, Chemosphere is one of the most photographed private residences in Los Angeles County. While you'll want to keep to the street as not to invade the privacy of the current owner, feel free to take your own photos of this saucer-shaped building.
